芯片短缺或将推迟电动汽车的研发

Chip Shortage Could Slow Electric Vehicle Rollouts

An automotive chip shortage has led to production cuts around the globe, just as many carmakers are gearing up to expand their fleets of electric vehicles.

汽车芯片短缺已导致全球范围内汽车产量的削减,与此同时,许多汽车制造商正准备扩大他们的电动汽车产业。

The shortage is a result of pandemic-related constraints on supply chains and other factors. And it could prolong the world’s sluggish transition to electric vehicles if chips remain scarce in the coming months, experts say.

短缺是大流行对供应链的制约和其他因素造成的。专家表示,如果未来几个月芯片仍然稀缺,这将会延长全球向电动汽车的缓慢过渡。

“If we’ve got an ongoing chip shortage for an extended period of time, that means those [electric] vehicles can’t get built, and they can’t get sold, and we continue to have more older vehicles staying on the road longer,” said Sam Abuelsamid, an analyst at the market research firm Guidehouse Insights. “So that’s definitely a problem.”

“如果我们在较长一段时间仍然拿不到芯片,这就意味着这些电动汽车上不了路,它们卖不出去,并且我们继续有更多的老汽车保持在路上,而且这种现象持续的时间会更长,”,市场研究公司Guidehouse Insight的研究员Sam Abuelsamid如是说。“所以这绝对是个问题。”
